The 70s and 80s were full of populist and arthouse independent studios that filled a void at theaters. Below are the more prominent companies with films they distributed -but may not necessarily own the rights to. Quite a list-but a great library of fondly remembered films-either thru cable or video-that have lost their way on the road to DVD from the Island of Misfit Movies. The * ones of are of most interest to me: World Northal: TERESA THE THIEF , SLAUGHTER IN SAN FRANCISCO , THE SAVAGE FIVE , TATTOOED DRAGON , THE BOD SQUAD , ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL , THE AMERICAN GAME , STONY ISLAND * , QUADROPHENIA* (on Hulu Plus-possibly Criterion) , THE DISAPPEARENCE * , STEEL* , THE ORPHAN , MANHUNT Joseph Brenner: LOVE OBJECT SAVAGE INTRUDER SACRIFICE THE BELSTONE FOX THE BELOVED SO EVIL MY SISTER MY WAY THE GIRL IN ROOM 2A ITS NOT THE SIZE THAT COUNTS MANNEQUIN TRACKDOWN FANTASIES* Gamma lll: DIRTY KNIGHTS WORK* BIRCH INTERVAL* PART 2: SOUNDER* (lost forever?)

I was thinking that I hadn't seen PART 2 , SOUNDER since it played-quite frequently-on HBO. I do not believe it was ever released on video of any kind, anywhere. It has not been shown on television for many years. In theaters-looking at old Variety boxoffice for Manhattan-the movie was a megaflop in Manhattan. Atrocious grosses when it premiered. Xid this receive a national release? I remember enjoying this movie as a teen. Producer Radnitz other missing flick-WHERE THE LILLIES BLOOM - lies with MGM . I wonder idf SOUNDER 2 resides there as well
